'sticky' headset bearing


Well-Known Member
I noticed that the handlebars on my S-WORKS Tarmac click into a straight ahead position from (I assume) dents in the race. Can that be caused by overtightening the tension bolt? It's never happened on any of my bikes. It's my newest bike, with about 350hrs on it. The lower bearing feels smooth when removed from the bike but I'll replace anyway.

Now I know why I was having so much trouble riding no-handed.
